Ireland’s brightest acoustic band We Banjo 3 (WB3) is pleased to announce their 2022 Spring “Awakening Tour.” The U.S. run of 20+ shows kicks off on January 15 in Frederick, MD and winds through the Northeast, California, Arizona, and then back to the East Coast.
2022 marks We Banjo 3’s 10th year making music together, and the band’s “Awakening Tour” launches an anniversary year ahead––of special tours and performances, new music releases, and more––to mark the milestone. For WB3’s “Awakening Tour,” the band and its community will reflect on what’s been, celebrate what’s ahead, and honor life’s always evolving and ever-renewing rhythms.
See below for the full list of currently announced dates. Tickets on sale now at www.webanjo3/tour.
Prior to the band’s spring tour, WB3 is currently in the U.S. in support of their first ever holiday album, A Winter Wonderful, released on December 3, 2021. The 8-track album is receiving strong support. As Country Standard Time reviewed, “[WB3’s A Winter Wonderful] album is like the difference between a bike and the latest gizmo, as gifts for Christmas. While the newest electrical do-dads may be cool for a season, bikes will please and satisfy recipients – probably forever. Similarly…the collection succeeds without applying a bunch of special effects. Instead, acoustic instruments, skilled playing and especially creative arranging should make this release a pleasant listening experience for many years to come.”
At the conclusion of the December tour, WB3 will host their 2nd annual “A Winter Wonderful” livestream performance on Saturday, December 18 at 8 pm ET. Tickets, including ticket/merch bundles with new seasonal/limited-run offerings, are available at www.webanjo3.com. Each ticket purchase includes on-demand streaming access until New Year’s Day.
